Supporting excellence in teaching and learning at MSU Denver

The Center for Teaching, Learning and Design directly supports MSU Denver’s primary mission of offering excellence in teaching and learning. We empower the entire academic community at MSU Denver by promoting instructional methods that increase equity, engagement, and success for both students and faculty at all levels of experience, in all course formats.

Mission Statement, 2020

Returning from Remote

Capturing the Good Work We Did During Remote Teaching.

Whether it happens this summer, next fall, or beyond, nearly all MSU Denver instructors will be going back to in-person classes after an extended period of remote teaching. Perhaps you were already experienced with online teaching and learning, or maybe you were thrown into a whole new teaching format. Regardless, everyone dug in to do the work of making sure our students got what they needed during a tough time.

Now, as you think about returning to a physical classroom, there is an opportunity to salvage, retain, and even treasure some of the work the pandemic forced us to take on. Check out the CTLD's guide on how to answer the question “How can I capture the good, useful work that took place?” Read more, watch a video highlighting the core concepts, and find out how to join one of our Guided Working Sessions.
